Christmas home tour

I'm linking up with Kelly's Korner's Christmas Tour of homes this week. 

I didn't do a whole lot in the way of Christmas decorating this year because I'll have a newborn when it's time to take it all down and I don't want to be overwhelmed. I also didn't take pictures of some of it but I'm too lazy to do that right now!

To start with though my mom and I did make this Pinterest inspired wreath which I love! 

This year we did our first real tree. Previous years we've had a skinner artificial tree that fit nicely on the landing of our stairs between the two baby gates to keep little hands from messing with it too much. This year the little ones are older and aren't messing with it. Next year might be a different story! Since it's a real tree my decorations are a little less than I would like but I had a hard time finding new ones to add that I really liked. Next year though I am for sure adding mesh deco to it! I'm loving all the trees that are decorated with it!
 All light up at night.
My mom and I also got crafty and made this no-sew ruffly tree skirt - which I really love... though not realizing how big the tree would be, we could have made the tree skirt a little bit bigger as it looks a little small on the tree.
I also have our Willow Tree Nativity set up but it stays up year round here. We don't have a mantle but I wish we did, so our stockings are hanging off the bar that looks into our kitchen but I don't have a picture of that... unless you count the picture I took of our Elf on the Shelf being naughty and replacing the stockings with Micah's underwear. No stockings in the picture though. 
Next year I hope to decorate more as I'm loving all the pretty decorations I've seen so far on many other blogs!

Your tree is so cute!! I love how puffy and round it is! We can't have a real tree because of allergies, but I so wish we could I just love them! I am going to use deco mesh on my tree next year as well. I used a little in my decorations this year, but will be adding it to the trees next year for sure!! I love what your Elf on the Shelf did so stinkin' cute!!
